BO140403: H. Boker & Co. Elforyn Ivory Straight Razor
Boker
 
H. Boker & Co. Elforyn Ivory

The compact best-seller. A best-seller in the H. Boker lineup back in 1906 was the razor with the 4/8" carbon steel blade (high edge retention, non-stainless). Due to the compact blade size, this model was a favorite in barber shops and for professional users. Nowadays, this size is fairly rare. The experienced specialists from Boker grind the blade with the popular round head. The scales are made of premium Elforyn ivory--a high-grade ivory substitute material--with the traditional Boker emblem. Made completely by hand in the Boker Manufactory in Solingen, Germany. Serial numbered.

Boker Straight Razors

Since the beginnings of the Boker Manufactory in 1869, high quality straight razors were made in Solingen. Even in these early days, the focus was set on high end materials and perfect handmade quality and craftsmanship. Soon this strategy gained success, and Boker straight razors became well known. After the second World War, the production of straight razors was ended internationally, due to destruction of the plant by allied bombing.

Today, an original Boker catalog from 1906 is the oldest document in the company's archives about the lineup of straight razors of that time. More than 100 years later, a new series of straight razors is handmade in the Solingen Manufactory and revives the old tradition.

A quality check for every straight razor is the so called "thumb nail test." Only perfectly ground razor edges can be bent on the back of your thumb nail and return to their normal shape afterwards.

Start the day with a true masterpiece--a straight razor from Boker.

Slightly misleading
Overall an excellent razor. Though like the gentleman before me noted, the logo does not get added to the scales as the picture shows.

Pros: Overall Quality
Cons: None
Picture is misleading. Elforyn ivory is not white but sort of white yellowish (blanc cassé) and there is not the small knot with the logo. but overall quality is fine. the blade is very sharp and very well made. the handle seems sturdy and yet it is smooth to open. For the price, its obviously very high quality.
